Product Description

Product Description

Tetra SafeStart Plus creates a biologically active environment to allow fast introduction of fish into newly set-up fish aquariums. Tetra SafeStart Plus reduces dangerous ammonia and nitrite and prevents new tank syndrome for a healthy start for fish in all freshwater aquariums. Contains live bacteria that start working immediately to provide a safe environment for new fish. Tetra SafeStart Plus can also be used after a water change, when adding fish or after medicating.“Cycling” your tank means growing the correct, healthy bacteria on a new filtration system to remove dangerous toxins. New filters are sterile and take 30 to 40 days for bacteria to naturally form. This concentrated formula speeds up the cycling process by accelerating the establishment of beneficial bacteria from the start for instant, safe results. Since 1951, Tetra has developed the world’s most comprehensive body of fish food knowledge, and fishkeeping enthusiasts have looked to the brand for products and solutions that add ease and beauty to their home. Whether you're an experienced hobbyist or just starting out, Tetra has everything you need–-from a large variety of quality fish food and innovative equipment to test kits and decor.

Start Your Aquarium Off Right:

Tetra SafeStart lets you instantly add fish without waiting the typical amount of time to establish the bio-filter. A patented bacteria blend works quickly to remove dangerous ammonia and nitrate so that you can get started immediately with your new aquarium. SafeStart is ideal to use when adding new fish, after medicating, and for all new aquariums.

Creating a healthy, safe aquarium environment for your fish from the beginning is important, so quickly establishing the correct water levels and helpful bacteria in the aquarium is why Tetra has introduced SafeStart. Its proprietary formula prevents New Tank Syndrome and accelerates the establishment of the bio-filter. So whether you're a beginner or a pro, be sure to use SafeStart when adding new fish to your aquarium.

How it Works:

SafeStart works by introducing all of the beneficial bacteria needed your new aquarium needs to thrive. New filters are sterile and take up to 30 to 40 days for bacteria to naturally form; this makes SafeStart an important first step in any new aquarium. Tetra grows actual aquatic bacteria that are naturally found in aquariums rather than low cost industrial bacteria from terrestrial strains as other products may do.

Proven Results:

SafeStart is scientifically proven to help keep dangerous ammonia and nitrate out of your aquarium. Simply add SafeStart to your new aquarium for immediately healthy aquarium water…it really is that easy!
